Since GTAForums is back with a new look, there has been more progress on the Zion LM!

The front is all done. It almost perfectly matches SilentSoul21's sketch, which is the plan. Still, there is plenty more left to go. Stay tuned!

Well... The Zion LM is based off of the BMW CSL from CSR Classics, so yes I'm technically converting cars from other games. 

And I do have plans to make a stock Zion Classic, but I need to finish the LM first. And I have another project after the LM that I want to get done before I make the stock Zion.

Wow, I am quite surprised you are making a BMW 3.0 lookalike. 😍 Seeing LC with lots of old cars would surely be amazing!

Now I'm starting on the rear of the Zion LM.

I'm still following SilentSoul21's sketch as close as I can, and I'm really liking how it is coming out.

 

Also a shout out to Dynamo from the Vanillaworks Discord server for making that sticker/badge/decal thing on the boot lid.

Thunders, I know you have a life besides modding, but if you could release a non-widebody kit of this good looking car, I would feel very grateful, man. Also, nice job. 

 

P.S. don't feel compelled to do it, if you release only the body kit version, I'll like it anyway.

Me and RM76 are taking about this thing:

It's called packer in the files but isn't anything like the IV or V Packer. I don't even remember seeing this van in any of the chapters in MP3.

 

Haven't checked this thread in a while, 40 new pages since this post :D Anyways- any news about this cool van? :p

Every time I´m checking this topic, I´m hoping to see some updates on that van, but it´s been over 2 years already and still nothing :(

The body for the Zion Classic LM is all done. Here's a cool spinning GIF to look at.

 

Zion_LM_360.gif

 

Now before I continue with the interior and other inner details, I'd like to get the model UV mapped for liveries.

 

Unfortunately, I'm going to be pretty swamped at work for a while and just don't have the time or patience to UV map the car.

 

If anyone has experience with that and wants to do it please shoot me a PM on this forum or on Discord. For clarification, the model doesn't need to be mapped in ZM2. I can convert the model back to ZM2 format after it has been mapped, so if you only have experience with ZM3 that's fine.

Sorry, I'm not interested in doing that van at the moment. I have other projects I'd like to finish before I think about more MP3 conversions.

I won't give any specifics on the next project. But let's just say if you like German cars, you'll really like the car I'm converting.

Well I have a suprise for you guys. You may remember that I hinted at another German car that would be converted along with the Zion project. (just look at the post above)

 

Here it is...

That's right, the Vanillaworks Club GTR is coming to GTA IV! Soon you'll be able to enjoy the original hot hatch in Liberty City.

 

And I also got the Zion Classic LM back from ThatOneHick. He UV mapped the whole thing for liveries, so progress will continue on that.

Yay!

@Thundersmacker You will convert Vanillaworks cars such as the Nagasaki Kart, Bravado Gauntlet Classic and S.

Glad to see that you're converting the Club that TG_Stig made!

 

One problem, sadly. There's some kind of weird mesh indentation below the C-pillar line:

IDK if it's because of the model itself or something else.

I was just about to point that out, but you beat me, @unbid.

 

Can't wait! I'm not a huge VW fan (by that I mean Volkswagen, not VanillaWorks), but little cars like this and the Blista are fun in GTA. I'm also looking forward to driving the Zion like a lunatic.

The original model has that as well, it's something I noticed right when I got the model in Zmodeler. I don't think there is any way to remove it due to the way the mesh is, but I can try to see if I can fix it.

Bam! I fixed that spot that unbid was referring to.

The fix ain't perfect, but it's a lot better than it was.

I mentioned this bit before to @TG_Stig but he said that it's intentional.

Oh, I thought it was a bug. Derp.

 

Regardless, it still looks better without that line IMHO.
